interrupt at any moment. >> i will. >> look, your president, bill clinton, had a great economy and then the monica lewinsky scandal and impeachment came along. and his agenda went off the tracks. your president, the opposition to the iraq war was growing. he won re-election but it kept growing and katrina came along and it undermined his second term. what lesson did you learn from a second term that could help this president? >> well, the president's problem was personal, not policy -- >> there are so many inappropriate things i could think to answer that question. >> but it's a completely different thing for that reason. but -- >> he got a budget. >> he got a balanced budget and the only world leader in world history to win a war without losing a single soldier, the war in kosovo which was a major war. >> i set him up for that. >> he had a very impressive second term but he had a huge personal problem that the republicans made a political problem. but i would actually counsel any president, especially this one, humility. you know, when a new hope is invested, there's someone s
and stand power at the point of a gun. i remember being up there on -- when bill clinton was sworn in as president. jerry lewis, veteran republican congressman from california there was and he was in the happiest mood. i said, you know, what are you so happy about today? you -- the president other other party won the election. he said, look, this is a great moment. this is america. this is what we are about. this is something to celebrate. i think he's right. >> we are being told that the president has entered the blue room. his family entered momes before. as soon as we all get the shot of the blue room, simultaneously, we will bring that to you. the president will be using the robinson family bible to swear on today. that was a gift from the first lady's father to his own mother -- his mother was the first african-american manager of a moody bible. and he will use that, and tomorrow, the bible that abraham lincoln used on his inauguration and one used by martin luther king. there you have it, a shot of the blue room, aptly named. >> this is a look inside the white house with chie
bill clinton making an appearance to introduce "lincoln." >> bill clinton makes an appearance everywhere. i love bill clinton. >> the guy has limitless energy. >> absolutely. >> what a coup for been affleck, stubbed by the economy. "argueo "argo" got best flick. big shocker at the academy. >> usually these golden globes give you some sort of an education as to where the oscars are going to go, especially in best director. ben affleck wasn't even nominated. you can't look at the golden globes as any kind of indicator this year. >> i would like to see ben affleck getting acco lates he deserves. mat damien got most of the credit out of the movie, the first movie they made, "good will hunting" but ben affleck was his partner in making that movie. >> he makes me crazy as an actor. he is a wapitiastic director. he is a really really really good director. >> he not om directed -- not only act but directed. >> in argo. >> we will be joined by amanda turkel from huffington post. john lowey from the brady center to prevent gun violence, the issue of the
-line second amendment position and president obama's position. if you were johnson or bill clinton you would have private meetings or ask your chief staff or others to have private meetings with republican members and say, what can we do? what can we agree on? no. they have this task force that is entirely testimony of all the people on his side, the n.r.a. comes in for 20 minutes and he announced the gun control, he does 23 executive orders and has a list of legislation. there is not much evidence that he wants to or knows how to try to co-op the republicans. >>bret: the moody -- bloody end to the algerian hostage stand off. >>bret: the smoke is clearing in algeria as the national gas plant. they captureed five surviving militants but the death toll is rising. 23 hostages have been killed and reuters say the number is 48. the total number of militants and hostages could be 81 with a number western governments upset how this went down. we are back with our annal. the administration said today, a.b. saying we will lead where they can lead but in this situation the algerians took the lead and
thing to vote against it when you're squandering a bill clinton surplus on tax cuts for those who don't need tax cuts pre-2008. it is another thing when you're trying to climb out of a recession. >> that's exactly right. there is a lot of misunderstanding about the debt ceiling. most americans think the debt ceiling is congress giving itself permission to spend more money. when they understand it is about do we default on our bills they say what? you're not going to pay your bills? that's what the debt ceiling is about. one of the things i advocated was the restoration of the gephardt rule that said when congress voted for a budget, let's say it voted for the iraq war that cost a trillion dollars, then at the moment that they voted for that program the debt ceiling would be adjusted up or down to reflect the budget they just voted for. that's what most americans would do. so this debt ceiling is all about hypocrisy. it is all about pretending that we have an option about paying our bills. by the way, a lot of the bills we have to pay are things i was adamantly opposed to. i didn't wan
any movement on this issue? >> it is a very difficult heavy lift, chris. you think back to when bill clinton tried this in 1993. he had a large major etan of democrats in the -- majority in the house of representatives and was barely able to get anything done and now, of course, the republicans control the house of representatives. and you put your finger on it the opponents of taking additional steps tend to be much better organized and better funded. my guess is most of the action in the regulatory arena and the administration will look to see what they can do on their own absent much prospect for legislation. >> chris: i want to broad then legislation. mr. weather iwhether it is the fiscal cliff or gun control or a major immigration reform movement by the president. he seems to be as he prepares for his inaugural a more combative president, more confrontational and less interested even in the beginning in compromise. one, do you agree? and two, what does that say to you about prospects for his second term? >> i think it is interesting because the president was elected in '08 by a
are like bill clinton. i think that's -- just unfair. but you know, i -- feel the president's annoyance yesterday when he was talking about -- palpable. >> i hear that people tell him you don't do this enough. boy, he gets -- sort of bristles. wait a minute. >> yeah. actually they do. and they invite republicans to come to the white house and choose not to come. this whole relationship building thing, it is a would-way street. he can only offer so much. republicans eventually have to say okay, maybe we will come to one of your state i didn'ters. >> well, the -- john, so already this morning, the pushback, it is not the formal stuff where -- upset about. it is the informal outrage. >> the president has to be true to who he is. you know. >> that's who he is. >> hay is an introverted guy. maybe overstated it but -- >> quote order the record about this. >> that's right. doesn't like to back slap. at the same time, it would help, i'm sure if he was more extroverted. it will reply a role in the next four years if -- >> i want to bring up a point, mark, that jon meacham brought up which is thi
night. jodie foster's coming out speech and a surprise from bill clinton. obama's immigration reform, joe biden's violence to reduce gun measure. and new dails about will and kate's baby. mother nature in all her glory. "early today" starts right now. >>> good morning to you. i'm richard lui. stars of tv and film turned out for the golden globe awards where we saw a pair of new host, some surprising wins and memorable acceptance speeches. >> reporter: good morn
. the richard newstat book about this, about the power of the presidency, it was kind of bill clinton's bible. obama seems to be moving forwards that away from the deal cutting. >> maria theresa, glen is talking long game, but in terms of the short game, the playbook seems to be one that he has used a lot in the last couple of months/year, i'll say, which is vault over congress and take it to the people and make them move however incrementally. the question is do we think is that can happen? can he have that kind of win on gun control 1234. >> he did exactly what he should have done. obama care, he said i'm going to go to washington, i'm going to go to capitol hill and negotiates inside, and people will come with me. what he is saying is he is basically drawing a clear line in the sand. this is where i stand. the american people, i'm going to -- i'm going to speak to you directly, and i'm going to go ahead and volley it over to the senate and they'll pass it. this is not my doing. >> hopefully they'll introduce it to the floor of the senate. that in and of itself will be -- >> i think the fac
to when bill clinton tried it in 1993, a large majority of democrats in the house of representatives and was barely able to get anything done and now the republicans control the house of representatives and you put your finger on it, those taking additional steps, they are better organized and funded than the advocates and my best guess is most of the action here will be in the regulatory arena and the administration will look to see what they can do on their own, absent much prospect ultimately for significant legislation. >> chris: i want to broaden the conversation, because, whether the fiscal cliff or gun control, story of the day about a major immigration reform movement by the president, he seems to be, as he prepares for the inaugural, a more combative president, more confrontational, less interested even in the beginning in compromise. one, do you agree and, two, what does it say to you about prospects for his second term. >> i do and it is interesting. he was elected in by a more significant margin, notably more significant margin than he was reelected. he was not nearly the
with the federal response to hurricane katrina there was the iraq war. you also had, you know, bill clinton everybody remembers, what happened in his second term. what are the potential problems that lie ahead for this president? >> well, i think any president who wins a second term clearly wants to fet -- get a lot accomplished. they feel freed up to do the things they hope they wanted to do, they figure voters endorsed them and endorsed everything they said they were going to do. that is actually not the case. a lot of times voters decided they like the incumbent than the other guy, trusted him more than the other guy he was running against of the you have members from your own party, you're on your way out two years from now and four years from now, why do we have to stick our neck out for big things but we have to pay the price and we would like to stick around for a while. having said that, for all the problems bill clinton had in effect in his second term he pick up seats, his party did in the 1998 midterms. when you look at george w. bush and his presidency, republicans had been in c
of the clinton bill, he stood up and said -- he told the story of the valentine's day massacre in 1929. and how it shocked the world when seven gangsters were gunned down in cold blood. it made the fog page -- the front page of every major paper in the nation and around the world. but in 1992, when a woman say to three month-old baby from execution by hiding that baby under the bed -- she was shot and killed along with her husband and teenage son. that story turned up on the second section buried in the back of the new york times. it was not front page news. it was barely news at all. i'll never forget what he said. he said, "i called that defining deviancy down." it wasn't even news. had it happened in 1929, it would've been astonishing. we can no longer to continue to define it deviancy down. we cannot wait any longer to take action. the time has come. as you know i delivered a set of recommendations to president obama on how we can better protect americans from gun violence i have been getting both credit and blame from that. i want to make it clear. the only power the vice president has is
he did, clinton about race, the welfare reform bill. people overlook a lot of things troubling. the other piece of this, melissa, this president, everything he did turned out to be about race. this is the first president that had to confront questions about his birthplace, confront witch doctor signs, people saying he was a black hitler. now the butcher of benghazi on the right. the over-the-top reaction to him that most people looked at as having a racial component. when he was elected, the right had two choices. they can react as a typical president or go absolutely insane. they chose the latter. it made african-americans overlook their anxieties about not being addressed. it made african-americans angry. it's why they showed up in large numbers. >> that, plus voter suppression. that was remarkable. you know what? i think there may be an interesting lesson from what you said about bill clinton, which those of us who are progressive have always wanted an alliance among african-americans and lower income whites who, in many cases face the same problems. if you look at the indus
, and pat caddell, former pollster for president jimmy carter, and doug schoen, form pollster for bill clinton. john kerry has a lock. he is a member the boys' club. the others? >> there will be issues and challenges with all three. if i had to bet i bet they all are confirmed and that hagel will be the toughest but ultimately will get through. the larger issue, with brennan going to c.i.a. and with jack lew going to treasury this is the effective consolidation of the white house and the president directly over treasury and c.i.a. and c.i.a. nominally an independent agency. >>gregg: these are corner -- cronies? >> yes and it is worrisome. >>gregg: pat, especially hagel who has said to republicans, troubling things about iran, hamas, hezbollah. >> said troubling things to democrats and not just republicans and he will be the most problematic. we see president obama and his chief of staff will either be biden's or the deputy of tom donnalyn, all white males, to drop the mask of pretense of bipartisanship, pushing the agenda through and the discussion each of them is what we can do in ter
: lowering the bar. host: this is from an interview in 1998 when bill clinton was in the white house and the nominee for the u.s. ambassador of an openly gay individual. chuck hagel said, "there representing america. they're representing our lifestyle, our values, our standards. and i think it is an inhibiting factor to be gay, openly, aggressively day, like mr. hormel, to do an effective job." he is saying those remarks were ill founded. guest: if he gets through the senate, he will be the secretary of defense. he is not in a domestic policy position. i think his record on domestic issues, whether they be guns or abortion or gay rights, there are other things like votes against various positions in the u.s. military having to do with a rights, naacp had very low marks for his civil rights record, all of which raises the question of why the president would want him. again, i get back to this issue that i think the senate committee has to pay attention to, which is, given the record, and given the fact the president was not interested in backing susan rice, why is he so dead set on ha
crowley, radio talk show host, doug cone, former advisor to president bill clinton. morning to both of you. what do you think about what senator rubio said about the president and second amendment. >> there is lot of wariness and caution on the republican side. they are worried this may be the beginning of a fall on assault on the second amendment. i think senator rubio is correct in his heart the president is not a big fan of the second amendment, never has been. you will recall, bill, president obama's first chief of staff, rahm emanuel once said, never let a crisis go to waste. newtown and aurora, certainly were crises. and i think they're being leveraged by this white house to at least begin an assault on the second amendment. essentially what the president did was sign these 23 executive actions yesterday and pass it off to congress, the outstanding question of of course is hough much this can actually get through congress. bill: you're right about that. come back to the original, question, doug. what do you think about the second amendment? >> i think the president made it very clear
: this is from an interview back in 1998 when bill clinton was in the white house. chuck hagel said, "they are representing america. they are representing our lifestyle, our values, our standards. and i think it is an inhibiting factor to be gay -- openly aggressively gave like mr. hormel -- to do an effective job." he has since apologized for those remarks. guest: he is not in the domestic policy division as secretary of defense. i think domestic issues, whether it be guns or abortion or gay rights, -- it is not just that ", but the way. -- it is not just that quote by the way. all of which raises the question of why the president would want him. i think the senate committee in particular have to pay attention to -- given that record, why was the president backing susan rice? why is he so dead set on having senator hagel be secretary of defense? i think he is somebody the president really trust to re- trench the american power. there is going to be a fundamental choice made for the next four years. his nomination is just beginning of that debate. host: isn't figuring where you want to mov
shocked at the surprise guest. that was hillary clinton's husband. bill: that was bill rodham clinton. right under the radar. standing ovation which was a huge shock. martha: a big night for ben affleck, who got left off the list for the oscars but won last night for best director for "argo", which i thought was a great movie. jodie foster receive ad lifetime achievement award, that will make you feel old, right. jodie foster during a seven minute speech she hinted about retiring talking about leaving acting for good. she broach ad lot of personal topics. she has been a private person a lot of focus on her sexuality, all of that came into the mix during her comments last night. >> i will never be up on the stage again, on any stage, for that matter. change, got to love it. i will continue to tell stories, to move people, being moved, the greatest job in the world. it just from now on i may be holding a different talking stick and, maybe it won't be as sparkly. maybe won't open on 3,000 screens. maybe it will be so quiet and dell catt -- delicate that only dogs can hear it whistle. mar
accomplishment for him. something that bill and hillary clinton failed to do during their presidency. a democratic priority for decades. he got financial regulation, which is new rules for wall street, which are just in the process now are being impleme implemented, as health care is. neither had a full chance to take effect. he did not get his goals on energy and changing the energy foundations of the american economy. he's going to try to do some of that in his second term with regulatory authority, and he did achieve some measure of economic stability and recovery, but there's a way to go. remember, he took office during a financial crisis, losing 700,000 jobs a month. we're growing, but growing slowly. he's got to try to build on that. >> picking up on that right there, it is a rather mixed bag when you look at the answer to the question, are you better off now than you were four years ago? let's go through some of the accomplishments. median income, federal debt, americans on food stamps, all down. worsened. staying on par, unemployment, same as four years ago. the dow nearly do
to put that tent with clinton. if you were getting hurricanes' every five or six years he would get a bill to there. the storm system in the 30's of any magnitude it made perfect sense when you get it. we're not going to rebuild that the way. so from the science perspective here is my asked. who is making the decisions about where we build, how we build, and building codes. if you're not familiar with the devastates and will take this to the federal government, no. this is that decisions are made every day where risk exposure occurs. on the day-to-day transactional basis you probably don't really see this, but this is where decisions are made about where we will kick -- where we build, how we build, the types of building codes we're going to enforce, yet many of these officials under tremendous pressure generate revenue. how the local officials to their revenue is jobs and growth. have you ever seen anyone running for office seminar committee to give small? it's always jobs and growth. that is the mantra. yet they're having to make decisions that oftentimes are short-term, very limi
